Death in NYSC Camp: My daughter was very healthy and nursed
no ailment Father of deceased


   

  Late Ifedolapo a corps member who died in kano camp
Mr. Olawale Oladepo, a retired Sanitary Inspector and
the father of late Ifedolapo Oladepo, a  vibrant youth corps member, who died in Kano
while on orientation camp, NYSC camp, insisted that the untimely death of his
daughter was allegedly caused by the carelessness of NYSC.
According to the father, Dolapo had no trace of ailment
before she embarked for Kano on Thursday, 24 November, and called at regular
intervals along the journey till she got to Kano around 1:00am the following
day and headed straight for the NYSC Orientation Camp.
 

Late Dolapo”s Father Mr Olawale Oladepo
  
He wondered how Dolapo, who played actively and
appeared so radiant in all the pictures she sent home could die of kidney
infection, according to the medical certificate of the cause of her death
issued by Gwazo General Hospital that alleged that she died of kidney
infection.
He believed the death was due to carelessness and negligence
attitude of the NYSC, adding that the authority should come out with a concrete
account of what went wrong to his daughter between 8:00am on Monday that she
reported to the camp clinic and the time she passed on at 4:am the second
morning.
“The death certificate issued by the Gwazo General
Hospital, Kano said she had sepsis that led to kidney infection. I wonder if
truly she had kidney infection, did the camp have proper medical facilities to
have kept her, and why taking her to the General Hospital with no facilities to
treat such ailments?”

Conditions for exhuming the body

 

Mr. Olawale Oladepo The father of Ifedolapo Oladepo,
the corps member from Osun State who died at the camp of the National Youth
Service Corps in Kano State, Mr. Olawale Oladepo, has said that the Federal
Government must meet certain conditions before the family would allow the
remains of her daughter to be exhumed for post-mortem autopsy.
President Muhammadu Buhari had ordered an independent
investigation into the controversial death of the first class graduate who was 26-year-old
in Transport Management from Ladoke Akintola University of Technology,
Ogbomosho.
Solomon Dalung the Minister for Youths and Sports, had
said that Ifedolapo’s remains would be exhumed for post-mortem autopsy.
The family also said they are yet to be in any
communication with anyone on the matter.
The family also argued that it will only consider such
option after all avenues such as listening to the preceding conversations of
Dolapo through communication network has been looked at.
Addressing newsmen in Osogbo yesterday, the father of
the deceased, Mr Olawale Oladepo urged President Muhammad Buhari to caution the
Minister of Sports and Youth Development, Solomon Dalung against making
inflammatory statement that could aggravate the pains of parents and family
members over the untimely death of Dolapo.
Minister Of Youth and Sport  Mr Solomon Dalung
He also asked the Federal Government to explore all
avenues, including the conversations of the deceased with members of the family
before her death.
Mr Oladepo, accompanied by other members of the family
and concerned friends of the deceased, gave account of what transpired between
his daughter Ifedolapo and other members of the family before her death.
While appreciating President Muhammad Buhari at making
sure a vivid investigation is conducted into the circumstances that led to the
death of his daughter, Mr Oladepo pledged his absolute cooperation with the
panel.
He also appreciated the Governor of his state,Mr. Rauf
Aregbesola, National Assembly members, members of Osun State House of Assembly
and the media for their interest in the circumstances that led to the death of Ifedolapo.
Corps member father’s account
According to father; ‘’Dolapo had no ailment and nursed
none. She was very OK hale and hearty. I personally took her to the park to
board a bus going to Kano and the bus departed at 6am on Thursday November 24.
‘’After a short father to daughter talk at the park,
the bus departed at 9am. My daughter called at regular intervals along the
journey till she got to Kano at around 1am the following morning. ‘’At dawn of
25th, she headed straight for the NYSC Orientation Camp with two other friends
she journeyed with from Osogbo.
‘’After much ordeals of registering at the camp, she
called me in the afternoon to keep me informed of developments.
‘’At 6:30am the following morning (Saturday, 26th
November, 2016), she called again as usual. She reported that they were woken
up by 4am and that they had finished the morning drill after which they would
go for another parade and the opening ceremony later.
‘’On that Saturday, she sent home all the pictures
taken with funfair with some of her friends and she looked hale and hearty that
day according to the pictures as she participated in all the activities of the
day.
‘’I now wonder if a person who had kidney infection as
claimed by the NYSC could participate and be so radiant in all the pictures she
sent.
‘’On Saturday, 27th, she reported there were no
activities. Her mother even called her that Sunday to send her NYSC state code
number and she did not complain of any ailment. It was on Monday she called her
elder sister complaining that she felt sick and was not being attended to
because they thought she was trying to avoid the day’s drill.
‘’The sister started conversations with the medical
personnel on duty and begged them to attend to her. The sister’s battery went
flat so she called an uncle who is a consultant. The uncle asked what she was
given, they told him Placebo.
‘’After some persuasion, they agreed to give her
medications. Sometimes later, when her sister’s phone came on, she told her
they administered some drugs on her and shortly after, her speech slurred, the
tongue twisted and she could not talk properly.
‘’There were visible patches of blood under her skin
and rashes all over her body. She took the picture of the hand to testify to
this and she sent it home. When her sister called again, the medical personnel
on duty told her she reacted to the drugs given and that they had given her
hydro cortisone to counter the reactions and that after one hour, if her
situation did not improve, they would transfer her to a teaching hospital after
much plea from the sister asking them to transfer her to the teaching hospital.
‘’The battery of the deceased phone later went off.
When the younger sister called her around 4pm of that same day, she answered
the phone but complaining she has not been taken to any health institution
requesting that we should come by air to take her back home.
‘’It was then the sister called Ilorin and when they
said the plane had departed and another wouldn’t be available till Wednesday,
she travelled to Ibadan to catch the night bus to Kano. It was on their way
that the sister was called around 4am on Tuesday, that she had passed on.
Request for NYSC’s story
‘’My request to NYSC is to give the family and the
entire world a vivid account of what happened to my daughter between 8am on
Monday that she reported to the camp clinic and the time she passed on at 4am
the second morning as reported by them.
‘’The doctor on duty at the Gwazo General Hospital,
Kano said she had Sepsis that led to kidney infection. I wonder if truly she
had kidney infection, did the Camp have proper medical facilities to have kept
her; and why taking her to the General Hospital with no facilities to treat
such ailments?
‘’Hence, by implication, whatever ailment may have
developed when she got to camp could not have resulted to death if she had been
promptly attended to and taken care of. However, she died out of carelessness
and negligence attitude of the NYSC
‘’Lest I forget, the NYSC may now tell me what the
relationship is between the second hand knickers she was alleged to have worn,
the rashes on her body, the twisted tongue, the blood patches on her skin, the
fingers and toes that turned black, the slurred speech and the kidney infection
that they claimed she had.
‘’Until they give answers to these questions, we have
little to talk about. This is not in a way to indict anybody but to bring out
the truth of the whole scenario.
‘’Apparently, she was not taken to any tertiary
hospital until she died, according to the medical certificate of the cause of
death issued by Gwazo General Hospital and I quote; “She died as I’m aware or
informed on the 29th of November, 2016 at 4am and that the cause of death was
Septic shock and kidney injury”.
According to the father; ‘’I’m worried about this
report that she had Urinary Tract Infection leading to kidney injury. Thus, I
wish to state for the umpteenth time that the cause of death as claimed by NYSC
is simply contradictory!
‘’May I also recall that as she conversed with me and
the sister the twisted tongue showed because her speech was slurred. We have
strong cause to believe their accounts were mere fabrications.
